Super Bowl's Greatest Plays Include John Elway's Helicopter Leap, David Tyree's Catch
The Huffington Post - about 3 years
The helicopter play. The helmet catch. The onside kick. When a game-changing play is made in the Super Bowl, it often gets a title with the word "The" in it. Few of these remarkable plays come from the defensive side of the ball and even fewer of them actually end the game. But with six seconds left in Super Bowl XXXIV and the Tennessee Titans 10 yards away from the end zone, St. Louis linebacker Mike Jones made one of the most clutch plays in Super Bowl history. Titans quarterback Steve McNair connected with receiver Kevin Dyson on a short slant route inside the 5-yard line. Dyson tried to lunge forward for a game-tying score, but Jones was there to wrap the wideout up. He stopped him a yard short of the end zone. Game over. The play would go down as "The Tackle." "Greatest play in Super Bowl history," then-Rams coach Dick Vermeil later told ESPN. "I still can't get over it, even after all this time. In certain moments, relaxing moments, I see the play over and over in m ...

WATCH: Most Memorable Plays In Super Bowl History
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Playing with the desperation of a man who knew he was nearer to the end of his career than the beginning, John Elway authored one of the most memorable moments in Super Bowl history with an all-out effort for a first down in Super Bowl XXXII. With his team even with Brett Favre's Packers, 17-17, deep into the third quarter and facing a 3rd-and-6 situation at the Packers' 12-yard line, the Broncos' 37-year-old quarterback dove -- only to be hit and spun around like a top while in the air -- for a few precious yards rather than taking the path of less resistance out of bounds. With a fresh set of downs to work with, the Broncos would take the lead two plays later. "We never felt so much energy after John ran like he did, refusing to go out bounds, absorbing that hit like he did," Broncos defensive lineman Mike Lodish later told ESPN. "When I saw that, I just shook my head and said, 'That's some kind of leader.' We were energized beyond control. After John's run, we knew we we ...

Lisa Swan: Five Fantasy Football Quarterback Flops Over the Past Five Seasons
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
With the 2012 fantasy football draft fast approaching, you may be spending a lot of time trying to decide who to draft at quarterback. After all, making a mistake at the position could cost you the chance at competing for a fantasy football championship. The problem, of course, is that even if you pick the top QB for that season, you could end up with a fantasy football flop in that spot. Even the best of players could end up giving you zero value in that category. Here are five recent examples of top fantasy football QB picks in the last five seasons who turned out to be busts: 1. Tom Brady, New England Patriots, 2008: Who could have been more of a sure thing in 2008 than Tom Brady as a fantasy football quarterback pick? After all, Brady was coming off an MVP season in which he threw 50 touchdowns and 4806 yards, a season that some have called the best ever. He led the Patriots to an undefeated regular season that year, and came within a David Tyree catch of beating t ...

UPDATE: Three people killed in I-80 collision in Davis
The Sacramento Bee - over 4 years
Three people died this morning in a collision on eastbound Interstate 80 in Davis. California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Bryan Konvalin said the crash occurred about 10:25 a.m. on eastbound I-80 just east of the Richards Boulevard offramp. A Mitsubishi Montero SUV was traveling eastbound in the No. 2, or center lane, when a Budget rental box truck traveling in the lane to the right of the Montero attempted to merge to the left. Konvalin said the box truck collided with the Montero, then veered to the right and ran off the roadway where it struck a tree. All three people in the truck were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Montero, who was alone in his vehicle, was not injured. Robert LaBrash, Yolo County chief deputy coroner, said the deceased were three men in their 20s or 30s, but he did not know where they were from. Their names are being withheld pending notification of family. Because the crash occurred off the roadway, Konvalin sa ...

Milk, cookies bring OSU to the yard
Ocolly- Oklahoma State Universit - almost 5 years
A grown man dressed up in a milk costume entertained students and faculty for more than four hours Wednesday afternoon. Some call him a ladies’ man, while others refer to him as a crazy guy dressed up like a glass of milk. However, after he put on a show outside of the Student Union on Wednesday, most students know him as Single Milk. “There’s no way I’m going to just walk by a singing glass of milk in the middle of campus,” said David Tyree, music performance senior. “He definitely got my attention better than any normal person handing out a flyer could.” Otis Spunkmeyer’s nationwide Milk Matchup Tour brought Single Milk to the OSU campus to help raise awareness for the Otis Spunkmeyer brand. Single Milk and members of the tour visited Stillwater after taking the campaign to Iowa and Minnesota. Single Milk attracted students to the Otis Spunkmeyer cart by serenading them with a ukulele and gliding around the Student Union plaza on a scooter. Once students cam ...

Super Bowl Prediction: Brady Will Be Sacked, Matt Will Get Crunk
The Faster Times - about 5 years
Like everyone outside of Massachusetts and New York City, I think this Super Bowl is the most boring, overplayed matchup that could have come out of the playoff field. No upstart 49ers, regaining their former glory, or Ray Lewis hunting for his second ring like a jacked up Captain Ahab. Even the old Champs in Green Bay, out to shove it all in Brett Favre’s face one more time, bowed out. Instead, we get a half-baked sequel Super Bowl XLII; two pretty good teams that rode luck and circumstance to the big show. Will Eli get another ring? Or will Brady get another ring? Whose press conferences will be more insufferable; Coughlin’s or Belichick’s? Will Antrel Rolle say something dumb? Most importantly, can I get drunk enough during the game to convince myself that this is the proper conclusion to one of the most exciting seasons of football ever? To answer that last one; Fuck Yes. As part of TFT’s ongoing coverage of the Super Bowl and ketamine use, I’ve drawn up this drinking game. It ...

    During the 2007 season, Tyree had 4 receptions for 35 yards with no touchdowns; however, his utilization in Super Bowl XLII was perhaps his most relevant contribution.
    More Details Hide Details Tyree made two key plays in Super Bowl XLII. First he caught a five-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Eli Manning, Tyree's first of the season, that gave the Giants a 10-7 lead late in the game. Later, on a 3rd-and-5 with 1:15 remaining and trailing 14-10, Manning eluded a sack and threw 32 yards downfield toward Tyree. In Manning's words, the ball "floated" high. Tyree leaped and caught the ball fully extended, bringing it down against his helmet with his right hand, while the New England Patriots' Rodney Harrison pulled violently downward on that arm, simultaneously wrenching Tyree arching backwards towards the turf. Tyree, who managed to get a second hand on the ball during the descent, seemingly kept the ball only inches from the turf, thereafter struggling successfully for possession while Harrison tried to steal the ball away from him on the ground. The play was known as "The Helmet Catch". "I told you. He's a gamer," Eli commented to his brother, Peyton, regarding Tyree, after the game. ESPN Sportscenter designated it the greatest play in Super Bowl history the following day. It was later voted for the 2008 ESPY award for Play of the Year. The pass moved the Giants to the Patriots' 24-yard line with 59 seconds left. Four plays and 24 seconds later, Manning threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress for the winning touchdown.
